Anyway, to answer the OP: Yes, men (even the good-looking ones) are often intimidated by beautiful girls. It is pretty obvious. Since men are conditioned to do the pursuing, so to speak, rejection is a possibility even if they approach 'average' girls. So with beautiful girls, well, you do the math.
A wealthy man will have an easier time scoring on the beautiful girl.

As for the OP...no, I don't believe most men are intimidated by beautiful women. The beautiful women I've known over the years have always had a line of potential suitors just standing by.
I don't see how she would be desperate? Men know that women can get lot of men regardless. It would be to a woman's benefit to ask the guy out.

2) The OP genuinely is living a life where she feels like guys don't really see her.

If that's the case, then we should try to be supportive.

Dancer: Part of the issue might be that men don't see past the uniform. They don't see the person who is underneath. The guys who are hitting on you half-heartedly in your dress aren't -really- hitting on you. They're hitting on what they imagine you to be.

Then, when you take off the uniform you become someone who is probably fun, flirty and most guys imagine you must have a ton of men waiting around the corner. That intimidates them as they imagine the relationship will be a constant detente with other men, which could be exhausting.

Yes, some men are intimidated by that. It's not fair, but I wouldn't worry too much about that. You probably don't want to be dating someone who is intimidated by you, anyway. Who would?
Lol at number 1!

Number 2 is a joke!

How will she know what the men thinks of her underneath?

I don't think all men are intimidated by beauty but there certainly are some on this board.

Outside of that it's rare I'll ever get hit on. During the week I work at as a realtor and many of the men I show places to will flirt with me but never ask me out.

This one guy I was really interested in asked my coworker about me by email (he showed me the email between them). He pretty much said he thought I was beautiful and wanted to know if I was single. My coworker told him yes but he never sent him another email. Today I gave him a tour of another property and the whole time he didn't ask me out! I am baffled. This happens all the time! A guy will ask someone about me and not say a word to me personally. There was another customer I had that did the same thing...asked a coworker about my single status but never said anything to me! It's funny guys always ask me how I'm single...well maybe if you'd ask me out! So my question is...could the reasoning be that they are scared/intimidated by me? I never really believed this to be true but I don't know why else

You are single because you sound like a superficial stuck up girl! Not because you are beautiful!!

I think men can be intimidated by beautiful women who have their crap together. I don't generally think they're intimidated by women who are beautiful but don't have much else to offer.

You mean the man who appears wealthy. Usually the ones who appear wealthy aren't, and the ones who are don't broadcast it.

Trust me, a truly beautiful woman is one of the most intimidating things in the world for the majority of guys, even when that's all she has to offer. Most won't admit it for fear of appearing anything other then masculine and supremely confident, but interacting with her vs. an unattractive woman, totally different experience for us guys.
